Always in search of the best quality / price for sleeping bags to sleep without trying the winter in our mountains, today I’m interested in a well-known fluff that comes from living a transformation. The North Face wanted a new Blue Kazoo lighter and less conducive to compression on sensitive areas. Let’s see what happens after a first battery of tests without winter bivouac tent or outer bag.

According to iamaccepted, the Blue Kazoo sleeping bag has been completely reworked, he returns with a more technical architecture, more space for the feet, a goose down going from 600 to 650 cu and adding synthetic fibers. The new Blue Kazoo is lighter: from 1253g to 1140g in Regular (data manufacturer).
For a weight of 1200g (1360g with compression sack 213cm, on my scale), this sleeping bag is a freshly revamped candidate for the bivouac 3/4 seasons.
